World Environment Day - Green Activities in Brisbane

by Sally (follow)
Green Activities held throughout Brisbane to learn about sustainability and the environment

World Environment Day is a reminder that there are small things each of us can do each day to make a positive impact on the environment. It is so important more than ever to live as sustainably as possible.

Brisbane has events all year round, a lot of them free, that you can bring your children to learn about gardening, organic food, planting trees and making the most of our products and the environment.

If you want to learn the basics of how to crochet, or if you are looking for a new hobby, this Crochet for Beginners class is for you!

1. Taya Kitchen Cooking Classes

Taya Kitchen at Enogerra has teamed up with the Brisbane City Council for the Love Food Hate Waste campaign. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness about the need to reduce the volume of food waste going to Brisbane landfill each year.

With a focus on Asian style meals, the class will teach you how to use up leftovers and commonly looked over ingredients. Ideal for beginners, intermediate and even experienced cooks. After cooking, participants will sit down and enjoy a meal together.

2. Peaks to Point Festival

The 40 kilometre long Flinders-Greenbank-Karrawatha creek corridor, provides a vital sanctuary for many threatened species of flora and fauna. The corridor is under continual threat so local environment, conservation and community groups are working to retain existing natural areas and to improve degraded areas, to increase habitat connections for our native fauna.

The Peaks to Point Festival is a biennial event held on 15th July, celebrating the community's efforts to care for the creek catchments on Brisbane’s southern region. The free family fun day held at Oxley, features live entertainment, children's activities, interactive stalls and displays and food vendors.

Over a two week period, from 14th to to 29th July, there will also be bird-watching, canoeing, bus tours, bird watching, platypus watch, tree-plantings and bush walking.

Date:14th July to 29th July, with the festival on 15th July from 10am to 4pm
Location:Oxley Creek Common
